How does Jantzi Roof Restoration install EPDM?

From Jantzi Roof Restoration we offer EPDM in already cut pieces and the necessary number to install it correctly in the wooden shed that you have purchased (you can see it in the Accessories inside the shed).

Its installation is simple and, in our case, together with the EPDM kit for your wooden shed, an installation manual and glue or contact adhesive for installation are included. However, here is a brief summary of how to install the EPDM:

  • The first thing is to place the EPDM pieces on the roof deck of the wooden house and thus correctly check the space to be waterproofed, always leaving excess at the ends of the roof to be able to install the EPDM over the entire surface and avoid any filtration type.
     

  • Regarding the union of each piece: we will place a minimum overlap between pieces of about 10/15 cm, in order to avoid leaks and achieve a correct waterproofing of the roof.
     

  • Once all the pieces are ready, we will remove one of its sides from one of the exterior pieces to be able to apply the right amount of glue both on the face of the EPDM to be glued and on the surface where it is going to be installed, on the roof of the wooden hut.
     

  • Once the contact glue or adhesive has been applied to both surfaces, we proceed to glue the EPDM to the roof of the wooden shed.
     

  • It is best to carry out this step little by little helping us with some type of roller, brush, or another utensil so that the EPDM pieces are well spread on the roof surface, avoiding any type of wrinkles and ensuring that all corners and surfaces are well protected.
